Track Name: This Is Your Summer
The scratch on your arm serves as a reminder
My insides, your insides, they are so frail

A fish-head on the shore, a jelly’s stinging sore
A ladder climbing high, an aging bruised backside

This is your summer, last year was mine
I’ll paint you a picture, but you’ll pay no mind
And when it’s said and done,
You can borrow every brush and bristle,
Palettes piled with mounds of oils and riches
Trace the shapes and feel the varied textures
Mix the colors up and you will see
The very hue that once I used to be

A fish-head on the shore, a jelly’s stinging sore
A ladder climbing high, an aging bruised backside
A scar atop my toe from climbing rocky shores
A wrist that creaks and cracks
When the weight has reached its max

But when do we know to stop?
Track Name: Colorfield
I don’t want you in the way
You will look right past my face
Colorfield is all you need

You won’t tell it to me straight
Can your mama or your papa
With me on this relate
Out of pocket, out of pocket

It’s constant on my mind today
A mouthing of my brain will pay
I’d give you both my hands if you’d
You want me to report to you
Track Name: An Oar
An oar, a paddle, it turns and guides us
Toward shores and waters and creatures unknown
In trees they spot us, they swim amongst us
But in our vessel we’re untouchable
We hear them call us, no fear but cautious
Under this hot sun we’re smiling
No fin could stop us, no man with purpose
In these still waters
Track Name: Sandpiper
Eyes in the ground, eyes in the sand
Eyes in the ground, hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand
I run from the shore, I run from the land,
Must keep my claws dry to feed my belly full
Feed my belly full, feed my belly full

Out in the barn, you hoot
Out in the yard, you swoon

If I could have it all, I’d not move very far
To feast on what I love, a sandpiper at heart
Sandpiper at heart, sandpiper at heart, sandpiper at heart
Track Name: In The Basement Corner
Healthy for the heart
Healthy for the heart
Healthy for the heart

Run inside, all inside in the basement corner
Slim it down, make it last you longer, longer
When you walk, when you run you will earn it, earn it
o e o o e o o e o o e o

Under me, under sea in the middle, middle
Patient mind, you can’t hide if it’s painted, painted
Give me some time to think if you want it, want it
o e o o e o o e o o e o
Track Name: Stare Straight Ahead
Stare straight ahead, that’s the way it goes
After years of absence, familiar faces turn to passing faces
Don’t catch an eye or make a sound
They will snatch you, grab you by the hand
and shake it ‘til you...

Tell them ‘bout the world that you’re living in
My eyes don’t close when the others talk to Him
I’m still learning, I’m still learning

Don’t forget to clue the ladies in
A change of address slip, a letter filled with peppermint
Weekly reminders rarely draw me back
But the life of professor wisdom
Yeah, it’s the life of professor wisdom
Track Name: Be Forewarned
Come on and say “a-oo-lalala,” come on and say
I like the way you move from afar, a perfect day
Come on and lay down on the floor, I’m on the floor
It’s only when you break down the door, I’m gonna stay

Instead of breaking down the wall, you come along
You see the writing on the wall, it’s on the wall
Instead of seeking what is before, you call yourself
I like to hold onto your arm, mylossophy
mylossophy, mylossophy, mylossophy

Be forewarned
